should be made to
provenance.

Source analysis and
evaluation examining
the strengths and
weaknesses of sources
using contextual
knowledge and

meanings of sources are
explained using own
knowledge and source
evaluation used across
all sources. Analysis or
evaluation will be
stronger.

where meanings of sources
are explained using own
knowledge and source
evaluation used across all
sources. Analysis or
evaluation may be stronger
reaching judgement on use
of reliability.
